- I am wondering if xarelto is causing me to have leg tremors? (1 answer)
In May of last year I was in the hospital being treated for dizziness and high blood pressure. They ran an EKG but didn't discover anything, the hospital put me on 25 mg a day of metroprolol tartrate. I went to a doctor and she switched me to lisinopril for the entire summer and it caused a great deal of adverse effects such as nearly passing out on a daily basis, sick, tired all the time, and really feeling ill all day long. I was switched back to metroprolol tartrate and gradually increased to 200 mg a day. I went to a heart doctor and he put me on xarelto. After being on it for a bout a month, I noticed my legs starting to shake when I am in a particular position. This only started after I started the xarelto. I don't have an appt with my heart doctor till June again. Should I bring this up to my regular doctor? He didn't want to put me on warfarin but I am wondering what to do?

Adult lifelong occasional scintillating scotomata without nausea or headache.
Each episode lasts about 20 minutes. Brought on by focussed stress.
Now much more frequent.
- I have mild myasyhenia gravis and have recently had heart surgery. could surgery, or anesthetics aggravate or exacerbate myasthenia gravis symptoms?
I was also given intravenous antibiotics prior to and during surgery. i am wondering if this could have exacerbated Myasthenia Gravis symptoms that are usually controlled by mestinon.
- Can i use a lidocaine patch for back pain if i am taking prograf for anti-rejection post lung transplant?
Transplant was 6 years ago.
Has suffered from PTLD on several occasions before.
Recently hospitalized for Periodic Fever Syndrome.
Received Interleukin 6 blocker last week and fevers have resolved, but back pain is still present

- Furosemide - joint pain
I went for my 6 months regular check up for my Atrial Fibr. on Dec. 15. The Dr. said everything is fine. I should have left it at that, but I told her my feet and ankles are puffy. She increased the furosemide pill from 20 units to 40 units. I must say I had been taking furosemide for a couple of years at the lower dose and had never once in all that time noticed any significant improvement in water retention. It never seems to make any difference whether I was taking it or not. So I started the higher dose.
About 3 - 4 weeks later, my back, and legs started hurting. That went away and my shoulder was hurting - then my left foot was painful and swollen and I could not get my left boot on. Then that subsided and my right knee became painful. I can only limp. and the back pain has spread right through to my upper stomach. For a week or so, I could not wear my winter coat because it was too heavy on my shoulders. That seems to have subsided now and the pain is mostly in my upper stomach on the right side as well as my left foot. My foot is not as acutely painful now as it was. If it continues at this intensity it will not prevent me from doing anything. I just wish my upper stomach was not hurting. It's like a little hard knot in there.

- Terrible excessive sweating from hydrochlorothiazide
I guess I fit the profile of who gets excessive sweating from HCTZ. I am a 65 year old female and suffered from excessive sweating for two years. With just very little exertion, I would pour sweat from the top of my head. It would run into my face and all over my hair. My hair would be ringing wet. I had heavy perspiration in the groin area and down my back also. I had to change clothing 2-3 times a day and wash up or shower that many times also. The doctor tried changing my Cymbalta and put me on Wellbutrin instead. It did absolutely no good. I went off the wellbutrin and back onto the Cymbalta. I did some research and saw that HCTZ could cause excessive sweating. Both my doctor and my pharmacist said that they had never heard of that. I went off the HCTZ, and my sweating stopped almost immediately. My doctor and my pharmacist were very surprised. I'm one of those people who frequently have different reactions to drugs than are typical. If you're having excessive perspiration and are on HCTZ, try going off of it. It just may be the culprit!
- Hydrochlorothiazide made me pour sweat
Hydroclorothiazide made me absolutely pour sweat for two years. My doctors could not find out what was causing the problem. It took little exertion for me to start dripping sweat. My hair would be absolutely soaked...especially in the summer, but if I was cleaning house in the winter also. I finally did my own research and proposed to my doctor that HCTZ was the problem. He did not agree with me, but agreed to let me go off of it for a short time. The profuse sweating stopped almost immediately.
- Bloody semen after taking amlodipine besylate
Was started on Amlodipine Besylate 11-13-14. Now -not quite three weeks later- I have bloody semen (Hematospermia)ranging from light pink to dark red. It was fine, and normal before. I feel it is the medication causing this.
Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 weeks ago):
From this study (4 weeks ago):
I have had 2 ocular migraines with elevated blood pressure this month. Could it be the Zantac? I took one last night for heartburn and had an ocular migraine this morning. Lately I have had a lot of flushing of the face and wake up with my face flushed in the morning although my blood pressure has been normal. I have had heartburn since taking the Lopressor and Norvasc and that is why I started on the Zantac OTC. I used to have ocular migraines about 30 years ago and they were related to decongestants.
Carmie on Jan, 26, 2015:
I am wondering if any of the above drugs could be causing my flashing lights type migraine. I do not have any severe pain with this. Could it be drug interaction and which one is causing the flushing of the face and heartburn. It did not start until I started the Lopressor and Norvasc.
